attacks on the president's so-called gaffes. >> ann romney was on "leno" last night. i didn't see the whole thing, but the clips i saw, i don't know. i know that's tough to say, but the relatability issue is constant. >> you know, and there's a bigger issue. they're having trouble relating. remember, driving around tampa, and we drove past -- ed, you'll understand this. being a populist republican, a conservative populist southern republican, we were going past all of these sort of little ranch houses. probably 1,800 square feet, whatever. probably cost $70,000, $75,000. as we were driving past, i said you know why mitt romney's not going to win? look at these houses. you know every one of these houses when i ran in my district, every one of them voted for me. every single person. i could go knock on the door, and they'd know my name. they'd ask for the yard sign. i said, how many of these little ranch houses here do you think are going to vote for mitt romney? so just so i don't make it about myself, you could have said the same thing about george w. bush. those people in those r

, the president. and ann romney was on with greta and as she takes a look at the last four years for women, what did she see? it's something different than miss cutter. >> the biggest difference, and it's the women that come up to me in the campaign trail. i will tell you four years ago, women that would speak to me had a lot of different concerns on their mind. this time around it is nearly universal that they're talking about jobs, the economy, their future, and they're talking about debt and entitlement and everything that is so critical that we make sure that we get a hold on this economy or we're going to see ourselves facing the kind of crisis if we don't address some of these things. >> steve: one of the poor things for the president coming up, there is a brand-new business round table report coming out where they poll ceo's and asked, how is the last quarter? they she had bleak. as for hiring in the future, they say there will definitely be job cuts in the next six months. so from the business round table, not look good. >> brian: not good for defense. david cameron needs a life line. >>
. by the way, ann romney yesterday did an interview where she talked a little about mitt's, what does he when he takes the stage. as soon as he gets up on stage, he takes off his watch and he puts it on the podium and then on a piece of paper, he writes dad. she says that's amazing because he loves his dad, respects his dad, doesn't want to do anything that would not make his father proud. i love the fact that mitt does that, so he writes that word, dad. he'll do that tonight on that stage. >> brian: i remember the question he was asked, what would your father do, now that you got the nomination? he said be bold. so if he wants to take that, that's really the philosophy he should bring in tonight's. >> martha: good point. he also says he looks into the crowd to make eye contact with her and to see where she is and to sort of have a moment of connection, which i think everyone has things that sort of ground them and help them to relax and be focused and it was interesting to get a little insight into what their ritual is. we'll see how that works out tonight's. and also we've got several new p

liability for romney? the romney family is a tight-knit clan. mitt and ann romney like many wealthy couples are working to make sure their wealth passes to their five sons and grandchildren. a family trust established as early as 1995 has amassed $100 million according to the romney campaign. romney's 2011 tax records show he has set up an intentionally defector granter trust or idgt. also known as i dig it trust. in this case romney pays any income taxes on the assets in that trust. >> that is a trust that people create where they give assets for future generations and they continue to pay the income tax on it. so i've given away an asset, but i continue to pay the income tax on it which allows me to shift more wealth to the next generation. >> what that means is if an investment in the trust gains in value by $1 million over time, it's romney who pays the 15 capitol gains tax of $150,000. not his children or grandchildren. in essence, it's like passing on wealth to the next generation without having to pay gift taxes on that amount. and gift taxes have ranged from 35% to 55% since the 199

. and they gave "time" magazine that 1968 photo of young mitt romney on a beach in france with his love letter to ann, written in the sand. i mean you can understand why they wouldn't maybe want to highlight that mitt romney spent his draft eligible years writing love letters in france instead of serving in vietnam, but there is also a human benefit to showing him, right? human. an ounce of handsome, humanized mitt at this point might be worth a pound of questions on how he avoided serving during the war. they are trying. they've even got him talking about health reform in massachusetts again. and conservatives now are so scared of him losing as badly as it looks like him losing that they are not even squawking about it this time the way they did when he talked about romney care just last month. the romney campaign is trying to do some things right. they're trying to make people dislike their candidate less. and then thurston strikes again. >> so he pulled me in, he tied up the boat for me, he rescued me just as he's going to rescue this great country. >> at the national level, fairly or not,
